Gratitude Challenge Day 9

Pray: Dear Lord, we are so very thankful today that we have been made perfect and whole in Jesus. We are thankful that You have changed our identity. You have redeemed us and set us free. You adopted us into Your family, and You embrace us as Your children. What a beautiful and precious gift. Too often, we focus on our flaws. But thanks to Jesus we have been made new. Each and every day You are changing us to be more like Your Son. And while we might not be perfect, we are being perfected through Your loving hands. Like a potter who molds the clay, You lovingly mold us into something beautiful. What a incredible masterpiece we are becoming in Your capable hands. Heavenly Father, we give thanks to You, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Practice Gratitude: What are you grateful for today? I am so grateful that God is changing me. I am grateful that I don’t have to focus on my faults because I am perfect and whole in Jesus. And I am grateful to be part of God’s family.

Praise. Here is today’s song! Enjoy! The Change in Me by Casting Crowns

  1. Good morning my friend,
    I loved your musical selection for today. I listen to a lot of Casting Crowns, but I don’t recall hearing this one before. Perfect!! 😁

    Day 9 – I’m grateful for the cheerleaders the Lord places in my life over the years to help steer my life on the course He planned for me. Unfortunately, I drove in the ditch a time or two along the journey, but He always had His “Ram (truck) in the bush” ready to pull me out and help set me back on course👍🏼. These people will remain nameless today, but they know and God knows ❤️.

    • Good Morning! I am so glad you enjoyed the song. It is not one they play on the radio, but it is one that I love. I too am thankful for the encouragement I have received from loved ones and from the Lord. I have driven off the path at times, but I am so very grateful that God loving steered me back on track! ❤️✝️


  2. I love the song especially these words –

    “Your Spirit is my constant friend
    You’re with me to the very end
    I’ll never be alone again
    You’re the change in me”

    I am thankful that he is the change in me, that he continues to mold me. For the provision of work and the blessing to have a place to call home.
    Blessings my friend 💙
